Re: Looking for people interested in getting paid for hosting wine tastings via video chat

Shoot Gary Vanerchuck an email I believe he used to do this to help sell his wine. Got an "in" with him? I could always use his deep pockets :) In all seriousness when I first was looking into this his videos came up. But for me, it was missing the interaction of being able to ask questions and eng...

Re: Looking for people interested in getting paid for hosting wine tastings via video chat

A question I have is what type of wine do you have in mind? Are you trying to get people to try 'high end' wine or mass produced wine or something else? Somewhere in between the two would be ideal. We've reached out to a few local wineries here in Colorado to get some meetings and see if we can put...

Re: Looking for people interested in getting paid for hosting wine tastings via video chat

You came to the right place. There is no shortage of “wine experts” here. [stirthepothal.gif] Haha That brings up a good point - We've gone back and forth on what to call the "Wine Expert" in this scenario because it means different things to different people. In my eyes, most people here know more...

What Whiskey are you Drinking?

I just opened a bottle of Koval Single Barrel Four Grain Whiskey last night. Only had a little taste but am happy with it so far. It's about what I expected for a roughly $50 bottle. Fairly smooth, with a strong oaky/spicy finish. Which is part of what they put in the tasting notes so that makes sen...

Re: Missouri

Old thread, but I know Cooper's Hawk Winery on the Plaza in KC, MO doesn't have a corkage fee. Food is delicious too, recommend the Southwest egg rolls as an app! I believe this is any wine bottle, though I've only ever used bottles that I've gotten from them for being a member there...

Re: Denver?

So much to love about Colorado, with this one exception: completely illegal. The only "work around" I've seen is at private clubs where you are a member and they provide a cellar service. I'm keeping completely mum about where and what as I suspect that the slightest scrutiny would destroy that opp...

Re: Walgreens Fedex

Anyone have any good/bad/indifferent experiences dropping off packages at Walgreen’s to ship via FedEx? Done it a couple of times with no issue. Not wine though. Same here. A couple of times I noticed it can sit for a day or two before it gets picked up, but haven't had issues with regular, non-sig...

I'm new to the Colorado wine scene and live in Denver. Is there an upcoming event where I can sample a wide variety of Colorado wines? Colorado Uncorked?

Re: Official Costco Thread

The Domaine Carneros is a good one, too. I think it was on sale for under $30 a few months ago at Costco. I had forgotten that the unfortunate part of the Costcos in Colorado is that initially grocery stores weren't allowed to sell alcohol, so Costcos let 3rd party liquor stores open attached to th...

Re: Napa wine tastings for my wife

Same for Domaine Carneros, which I have also not done. I recommend both, but they're very different. Schramsberg is k...

Re: Official Costco Thread

Kirkland Champagne $19.99 - I picked up a bottle and shared it with my wife who loves champagne. She said she didn't care for it, that it didn't have much going on. I liked it a little better but it wasn't distinctive at all. Just smooth and bubbly. Much prefer the Roederer Estate or the Schramsbur...
